Greek Salad I

Reviewed: May 17, 2013
Went on the DDP yoga diet plan this week and all these fresh ingredients fit right in, even feta cheese! Less red onion, added spinach and my non-vegetarian hubby added lean chicken breast for a meal. Best Greek salad I've ever had - thanks for posting!

Italian Veggie Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2012
Excellent twist on a classic dish. Next time I will use zucchini instead of broccoli. I also used whole wheat noodles in an attempt at making it more healthy which worked well. I ended up way too much veggie mixture for the allotted space in the pan, so I used the noodles that broke to make second smaller casserole with sauce, noddles, veggie mixture, more noodles and sauce on top. It was nice because now I have dinner for another night this week already prepared. Was really good with Italian bread and I will add a side salad next time too. The only down side was rolling the mixture into the noodles and transferring it to the pan - messy! Tasted great though. Thanks for the recipe!

Vegan Mexican Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2012
I love the spice in this dish but I think I would probably call it a soup rather than stew. Maybe I just added too much broth? I added light red kidney beans instead of hominy (never used it) but next time I will add corn too. I served it with crusty bread but it would've been better served with cornbread. Overall, delicious and flexible dish - thanks!

Mock Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2012
Followed the recipe exactly and this is delicious! I've been vegetarian for 15 years so I think this tastes like tuna salad. My husband just converted a year ago and says it doesn't taste like tuna but we both agree this recipe is fantastic on toast or saltines. Nice job - thanks for sharing!

Cheesy Sausage Zucchini Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2012
Do not hesitate to turn this into a healthy dish. I used a box of Morning Star vegetarian sausage patties, whole wheat rotini instead of rice and fat free shredded cheddar cheese instead of cheese goo. It turned out fabulous. I also used fresh mushrooms, one fresh tomato and one can diced (to keep enough liquid) and added garlic, lots of oregano, minimal salt cause the sausage has it. Only cooked it for about 10 minutes since everything was already cooked. Just needed to melt the cheese on top. You could even go vegan and make this with soy patties and no cheese or vegan cheese. It was so versatile, filling and delicious - a definite keeper for the rotation.

Sweet Potato Minestrone

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2013
Agreed that white beans or lentils would've made this a full entree with protein. Used homemade veggie broth for a delicious no preservative, gluten free vegan meal. Also subbed peas for green beans for the kids. Will make this a lot! Served with a side of homemade gluten free bread brushcetta. Perfect! Thanks for posting :)

Vegetarian Korma

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2011
Using other reviewers advice I pre-cooked the potatoes and carrots. Next time I will steam all the veggies ahead of time as they remained failry crisp. I also added cauliflower and broccoli so I needed more tomato sauce mixture which meant I also needed more spice than what's called for. I was hesitant to use all coconut milk thinking I might miss the creaminess so I used 1/2 c coconut milk and 1/2 c. half and half. Next time I will definitely use all coconut milk. Also added cayenne pepper as we like it spicy. It turned out nice and wet so it went well with basmati rice. Didn't have naan so I heated butter and garlic in a pan and cooked pita until crispy and hot. Was delicious! Definitely a keeper!

Vegetarian Meatloaf with Vegetables

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2011
I've been vegetarian for 16 years so I don't really remember how meatloaf tastes, but this is a great tasting recipe that my husband who just recently became vegetarian said does indeed taste like meatloaf. The only issue is it does fall apart and I'm not sure how to correct that problem. I followed the directions exactly except used the 1/2 c ketchup, 2 tsp mustard and 4tbs brown sugar topping instead of tomato sauce. I found that the extra salt called for in the recipe makes it a bit too salty. Both my kids liked it so it gets 5 stars from me, but I would've given it a 4 for taste and texture. I also used mashed potatoes and steamed carrots to save cooking time so it ended up only needing 30 min. total. Overall, good winter time recipe, very savory.

Seven Layer Dip II

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2011
Best dip ever! I don't like sour cream or olives but this was delicious as written. I made it with Wholly Guacamole just because avocados in the mid west are expensive - turned out so good I almost just ate it with a spoon. Will definitely make again and again - thanks!

Baked Ziti

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2011
I had to give this 5 stars because my picky-eater kids loved it! I didn't have Ricotta so I used cottage cheese instead and just 1 egg. I also used fake meat (vegetarian) and homemade Italian tomato sauce Since I didn't have the extra juice from real meat, I only cooked it for 30 minutes total. I did the math and including Italian bread and sauce from scratch it cost $12.96 and we have lots of leftovers for lunch tomorrow. So much better than the $65 we pay at our favorite Italian restaurant. Great recipe, will definitely make this for years to come. Thanks!!

Mom's Best Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2011
As a vegetarian I am forced to be a connoisseur of side dishes and this one rocks! It tastes like it's from a great deli. Based on other reviews I didn't add any sugar and it was perfectly sweet and delicious. I was scared how it would turn out because I ran out of real mayo so used miracle whip instead. I think it may have turned out even better because of the tangy-ness of miracle whip. LOVE IT!! I will definitely make this for our next pitch-in or bbq instead of buying it.

Golden Sweet Cornbread

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2012
Made as written except used a little less sugar and sunflower oil instead of veg. oil. Turned out nice and moist - now a family favorite, even for my picky kids. Thanks for the recipe! I made it with the spanish rice bake from this site (only made it vegetarian using frozen crumblers) Great meal and pretty cheap too.

Traditional Style Vegan Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2011
Delicious Comfort Food! After 8 years of marriage my husband finally converted to vegetarianism and asked to have this instead of turkey at Thanksgiving - delicious!! I changed the recipe to use what I had on hand and did use real dairy but it still turned out fabulously! Absolutely 5 stars!

Baked Falafel

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2012
I had an awful falafel at a high end restaurant last weekend and thought to myself "allrecipes.com can do better than this" and sure enough, this recipe pulled it off. I found like other reviewers that they did fall apart but that was remedied by making a more fine chop in the processor instead of a coarse chop. I followed the directions to a T but doubled it and stuffed it inside pita pockets with red onion, spinach, cucumbers, tomatoes and tzatziki for a vegetarian gyro. I also misted the patties with olive oil before baking so they didn't dry out at all. My recipe for tzatziki: seed and grate 1/2 q cucumber and blot with paper towel, dust with coarse salt and let sit for 10 min. Combine 1tbsp minced garlic, 1 1/2 c greek yogurt, 1 tsp fresh mint, 1/2tsp dill, 1-2tbsp olive oil and half a squeezed lemon. Add cucumber and refrigerate for several hours for flavors to full merry. I think this was by far the best falafel I've ever had. Thanks so much for the recipe! Awesome!

Stuffed Peppers My Way

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2011
Delicious! Being vegetarian never tasted so good! I did as other reviewers suggested and lightly brushed with oil before roasting; only needed 20 min. Also added mushroom, corn for color, veggie meat crumblers (will do beans next time) and a couple tablespoons of homemade tomato sauce just because it became too dry with all the extras I added. I think regular onion would work if you didn't have green and a lot of different cheeses could be used too. I doubled the recipe but will halve the salt next time. I also think any pepper would work, not just green. Great versatile recipe - thanks!!

Penne with Spicy Vodka Tomato Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2012
What's really nice for me about this recipe is that you can substitute real sausage for Morning Star vegetarian sausage. I halved the recipe and still used a bit less oil and red pepper than suggested but the whole can of tomatoes. Don't worry about the cream curdling, it does fine. Tasted great but I can see using half and half instead of heavy cream to make it healthier. Whole wheat pasta would probably work too. Thanks for the recipe!

Lentil Rice and Veggie Bake

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2013
Hubby requested this be added to the rotation :) Such a delicious dish for us gluten free vegetarians (aka weirdos - lol). I used wild rice and red lentils cooked in homemade veg broth, used more carrots and zucchini and used a 15oz can of tomato sauce instead of 8 (maybe this is why others said it was dry). Kids added moz cheese to theirs and liked it. Thanks for posting this recipe!

Creamy Spinach-Stuffed Portobellos

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2012
I'm so glad I read the reviews before cooking this because a whole can of soup would've been too runny. I used crm of mushroom soup instead of celery and it worked out great. I don't think this is a stand alone meal, though. A side of potatoes or rice would work well. Will definitely make again.
